Etymological origin of Italian surname: Coronei


Coronei is practically unique and should be due to a transcription error of the surname Coroneo which would seem typical of the Salento area of the Galatina area (LE) and could derive from the Latin nomen Coroneus of which we have an example in the Metamorphoses of Publius Ovid Naso: ". ..nam me Phocaica clarus tellure Coroneus (loquor note) genuit ... ", but most probably derives from the ethnic Koronè Greek city of Morea in the Peloponnese. additions provided by Guido Massacci There are also minimal presences of the surname Coroneo in Sardinia and Sicily. The Sardinian Coroneos, of Cagliari, mostly, and the Sicilian Coroneos of Cagliari origin, have a different origin from the Apulian Coroneos: they descend from the French Joseph, Jean, and Claude Codonel, who arrived in Cagliari at the beginning of the XVIIIth century from Provence , probably from Le Puy Sainte Reparade, near Aix En Provence; the surname was transformed into Codoneo during the 18th century and into Coroneo around 1800.
